Pete and Moses in Snow

Tonight is the first full moon of the year, known among Native Americans as the Full Wolf Moon. It is named for the hungry wolves who would gather in midwinter at the edges of the villages and howl for food.

Or maybe it’s just a beautiful legend.

My own wolves are curled up on the couch in front of a roaring fire while the snow falls outside. It’s a much more comfortable location in sub-zero temperatures.
